Zayn Malik's solo fears

Zayn Malik worries about failing as a solo artist.

The former One Direction star fears he will not be successful on his own and is planning a "simple life" if things don't go to plan.

He said: "I think about all aspects of the outcomes of what is going to happen with everything. I don't know if that's just something in me, or something that's natural with everybody. I tend to think about that.

"It does worry me sometimes, but all I can do is what I'm doing right now. Just go with it and try to hope for the best. I'm enjoying it right now, being creative. I'm enjoying writing music and doing this. And if it doesn't work out, I would probably just live a simple life."

The 'Pillowtalk' hitmaker has also set his mind on getting an English literature degree and would love to take a back seat after his debut album, 'Mind of Mine', drops so he can focus on his studies.

He added to Complex magazine: "I want to go to school. I'd love to get a degree in English, or literature. I think I'll just do a home thing. I'll get my courses from one of the universities around here and just do home study.

"It's always something I've wanted to do. I've always wanted to get my degree eventually. I want to do that, and hopefully write my next record while I'm doing it."
